🔗 Well all of a sudden you've discovered a work ethic.
🔗 Where you can't even be short out wants to go down to me didn't want to at the
🔗 hospital know and he said not to make a song
🔗 and dance doesn't mean you have to take him at face value.

🔗 but what can you do. Family comes first.
🔗 when everyone in your family feels the same way to do you mean I doesn't matter.
🔗 Are you talking about to be. He's refusing to help look after that.
🔗 For now I'm going to have to go down there
🔗 and leave him to run everything by himself.
🔗 The man who can't remember to shut the hens in at night who thinks ten am is an
🔗 EARLY START.
🔗 Rather put all his energy into chasing good than into protecting our livelihood X..
🔗 I'm sorry. You know if that's how you feel.
🔗 I honestly thought seen
🔗 that that's my brother could stick to his feckless He's our good
🔗 and totally narcissistic. But he's still my brother.
🔗 Some reason I thought that would matter.
🔗 Yes well obviously but when he can't even put his own father before him self.
🔗 Well it's made me realize just how self-serving he is. God.
